Zadie Jumpsuit



The Zadie Jumpsuit by Paper Theory Patterns is a beginner garment project that is so simple, yet it looks amazing on even hard-to-fit body types!

The Zadie Jumpsuit is a relaxed and easy to wear one piece that comes with the option of wide 3/4 length sleeves, or sleeveless with a dropped shoulder. It wraps around the body and fastens with a tie so there is no need for buttons or a zip - making it quick and to easy sew, and quick and easy to get on and off.

The legs are cut wide and skim above the ankle. There are deep slant pockets on the front, with small pleats at the waist on the front and back. The neck edge is finished with a bias binding.

You will learn to make your own bias binding and apply it to the neckline. You will also learn how to create a slant trouser pocket. The rest of the techniques are standard straight stitching and hemming.

This pattern was designed especially for woven, medium weight fabrics like cotton and linen and would look great in fabric that has a draped quality like crepe, viscose twill or satin. It would also make up well in some heavier fabrics like drill and light weight denim. 

Sewing pattern will fit up to a 56” bust, 47.5” waist, 57.5” hip, and 18.25” bicep. Bicep is only important for the sleeved version.
